think is powerful. >> is there obama momentum right now, chuck? you score these pretty straight right down the middle. >> it's funny. i call it -- there's sort of the campaign insider's zeitgeist, if you will, and there's this assumption whether you heard haley barbour say it publicly, i talked to strategists on both sides, on the republican side worry about it privately and the democratic side hopeful for it. they think there's some sort of bounce for the president on sandy. nobody can point to any metric yet to prove this, but when you think about where things were a week ago, a week ago there was this assumption that, boy, all the intangibles here at the end were going to -- >> let me -- >> -- to romney. now it feels there's intangibles that may favor the president. >> i get the sense that the love of romney by the right and other political players is based on sand in this case. and guys like the governor of new jersey and all the voices out there that haven't come to romney's help this week, they don't love him enough to say, wait a minute, forget this storm, this guy is great. >>
just before the storm. right? that was colin powell. president obama today actually released an ad highlighting the colin powell endorsement. >> will you endorse president obama? >> yes. when he took over, we were in one of the worst recessions we had seen in recent times. close to a depression. and i saw over the next several years stabilization come back in the financial community. housing is starting to pick up. the president saved the auto industry, and the actions he has taken with respect to protecting us from terrorism have been very, very solid. >> the reason colin powell's was the most eagerly anticipated endorsement of this election is because his endorsement of barack obama in 2008 was seen as being a consequential thing in terms of the obama lead over mccain in '08 and how the election was going to turn out. also more importantly, colin powell is probably the single republican in the country who has the most gravitas and credibility with crossover voters, independent voters and with generally speaking nonideological people who admire his leadership and his judgment. eve
for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> under the boardwalk. hurricane obama buries romney. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. the hurricane and this president. hemingway called it grace under pressure, the highly educated call it good government. the american people who count the most call president obama's handling of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch.
what's right for you at constantcontact.com/try. >>> in tonight's rewrite, more proof that the obama campaign is running a turnout election. the obama campaign in the closing weeks does not need to persuade voters to switch their support from mitt romney to barack obama. they simply need to persuade the supporters who support president obama to actually go out and vote for him. especially younger voters. the obama campaign has now delivered the hippest ad in the history of presidential campaigning, starring possibly the most ultra cool person in the history of television. >> your first time shouldn't be with just anybody. you want to do it with a great guy. it should be with a guy with beautiful -- someone who really cares about and understands women. a guy who cares whether you get health insurance, you want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of iraq. or thinks that gay people should never have beautiful complicated weddings. it's a fun game to say who are you voting for and you say i don't want to tell you. think about how you want to spend those four years. in college
right now shows president obama ahead by two and in nevada president obama ahead by 2.7. then later in the night at 11:00 p.m. and then 1:00 a.m., we'll have california, hawaii, idaho, oregon, washington, and then the last poll closing in alaska. unless this is a very strange night, those races will be interesting for governors races and senate and house races and state issues, but not necessarily for the presidency. unless things go very, very digital differently than expected to go. this is how your election viewing is going to unfold hour by hour on tuesday night. if you just exclude the states for the presidential race where everybody pretty much knows exactly how it's going to go and just the states where there is some question as to what's going to happen, here is a clip and save thing for you about these states. the battlegrounds. all right? states that you know are going to be important and everybody thinks they're going to be close. these are the states everybody is going to be watching on tuesday night. each of these states, as you know, has a top elections official. and e
, it's got to be with the right guy. vote for obama, just like having sex with obama. you've got to choose the right guy. if i were a woman today, this -- i would feel insulted each and every day. the way they look at women. all thinking the same way. all wanting the same things. i think that ad, some people look at it and they'll think it's cool and hip and representative of the country day modern pop culture but i think it's an insult to women everywhere. this is the kind of thing you do in desperation when you do have an jaebd when you don't have anything positive to say about yourself. >> yes the hurler of insulths of women everywhere is suddenly the defender. every one you just heard from thinks of ronald reagan as a perfectly reasonable candidate for saint hood. he got 100% of the votes from the can't take a joke crowd and 110 votes from the can't take a dirty joke crowd. and today's uncomfortable fact that when he was running for president, ronald reagan told a double entendre joke that ingeniously included a double entendre that allows for both straight and gay. >> listen
went to the polling station and pulled back the curtain. i voted for barack obama. >> all right. so there is an obvious metaphor. i think the best adjective to describe that would be cheeky. it precipitated like a combination of total fake outrage and genuine outrage i think on the right. i want to talk about this ad not because it's in the news cycle and people are getting mad. to me it says something profound about the political calculation where we are. i want you to think for a second. would john kerry have cut that ad in 2004? no fricken way. they would not have touched that ad in 2004 with a million foot poll. i want to ask you guys why that is right after we take this break. ♪ with a low national plan premium... ♪ ...and copays as low as one dollar... ♪ ...saving on your medicare prescriptions is easy. ♪ so you're free to focus on the things that really matter. call humana at 1-800-808-4003. or go to walmart.com for details. this reduced sodium soup says it may help lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just have to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1
it tell you right now that a lot of the promises barack obama made were in iowa. he didn't come through on those promises. i think that's a big deal. wisconsin, i'll be there tomorrow. wisconsin, i think, right now the momentum is with governor romney. we've done a whole lot of winning as republicans in wisconsin. you look at colorado. >> let me stop you in wisconsin because i want to read you something that david axelrod told "the daily caller." >> we expected wisconsin to be closer than last time. it is in our column now, and it's going to be in our column. >> yeah, well, he can say whatever he wants to say. i mean, they haven't been able to win in wisconsin for a long time. they claim that the obama machine was out during the walker recall. we basically crushed them in wisconsin. i have seen firsthand the difference between obama's rhetoric on their ground game and the reality, and the reality is they're not as good as they think they are, but overall besides the ground game talk, this is about the president's policies, the current state of the economy. it is a complete disaster. onl
-- that are scheduled. so 17 events. obama has six events in ohio. you can see where his priorities -- three in wisconsin. two in colorado. iowa has one and one in nevada, virginia new hampshire and florida. that's all right? is that where you would be telling them to spend -- >> he wins ohio, he wins. i don't see there's any path for romney to win this without ohio. >> jennifer: if romney won everything else -- >> he could win everything else but it makes it almost impossible for him. i would be in ohio. i would be in virginia. i would be in iowa. >> jennifer: would you be in north carolina joe? >> no. >> jennifer: really? >> yeah. >> jennifer: even though early voting is -- what about florida? >> no. i would spend more time -- >> jennifer: 2 points up. >> you can block -- you know, you force the other campaign to spend money. you keep it tight and it is a chance -- there's absolutely no way he can get florida. >> the thing about this race which i've never seen before in the five presidential races i've worked on, the
, what it really is it is a chance for the right wing to finally call obama what they've always wanted to call him which is a murderer and a traitor. it is being whipped up with the election season and that's where they find themselves. >> stephanie: my favorite tweet of yours this week, this election is worth it just to watch karl rove and the final days of the campaign whine like a child about how mean and nasty obama is. you know, there's that and then your piece on fact checking fox news. it is just again talk about two sets of -- continue to insist that the president's been on an apology tour. that the president didn't call benghazi an act of terror until two weeks ago. >> all of it. all of it. and again and the reckoning is going to come on election night. so how are they -- if obama wins how -- what are they going to do? they have put so much time and effort into creating this alternative universe. i don't know how they're going to deal with it. i don't think it is going to be pleasant for the rest of the
right? and barack obama did use affirmative action to, you know, be educated in something like that. do you think that there is any racial business here? >> no. >> bill: i'm not saying that in the pejorative. in the negative. >> no. >> bill: the general and the president came up the same way? >>. no because that means that if mike huckabee supports you, is there racism? absolutely not. >> i didn't say racism. i said racial connection because identifiable. >> i understand what you are trying to say there, bill. i think it's disrespectful. it's disrespectful to general powell. it's disrespectful to the president. you cannot take especially colin powell you can't take such a pedigree and dilute to to pigmentation. >> bill: you don't think shared experience enters into general powell's endorsement. >> you are telling me if president obama had not done a good job that colin powell, general powell would have supported president obama regardless? absolutely not true. >> bill: no, i'm saying he might be cutting him more slack. >> i disagree with you. you can try to paint it any way you want to
about health care and guy rights and stuff like that. but the obama people know that he has had this opportunity with sandy to get out there and look extremely presidential, to be bipartisan, to kind of wear the mantel of commander in chief in the midst of this national tragedy and they think that that is to their benefit and, of course, people see that and they are playing on that sort of thing, too. he has the advantage of office and it's not to be sneezed at at this stage of the game. >> thank you both for your time tonight. >> thanks, reverend. >> thanks, rev. >>> tonight, a developing investigation into mitt romney's plan to train an army of poll watchers to intimidate and mislead you at the polls. it's a big, important story and we have exclusive new video the romney campaign has been trying to stop you from seeing. >>> also, the gop's freak kout over chris christie. they just can't deal with this praise for the president. and now it's sinking to a new low. >>> and george w. bush has a big october surprise for mitt romney. and he's definitely not going to like it. >>> all
romney to knock it off. >> cenk: all right, that's pretty good. you know when he gets excited his voice goes up a little--not true. but it isn't true. both candidates have been crisscrossing the country especially president obama. i get the sense that he might go to ohio a couple of times. tell me about it. >> but a look at the rest of his campaign schedule makes the buckeye state look like an airline hub for air force hub through election day. for his part mitt romney is not only focusing on ohio but also hoping to win over wisconsin. he's looking to broaden the battleground map campaigning sunday and visiting new hampshire twice, the smallest swing state that may be edging in mr. romney's direction. >> cenk: all right, now where is it edging? lucky for you we have the numbers. latest polls 50%-47% in favor of president obama in ohio! now what did i tell you was key to the election night? you're going to look out for owin. that's "o" as in ohio "w" which is, "i," in "with a and nevada. they are there with the two two first baptist church to four-point--there with two two- two- to four-
bed if obama is elected, but if romney is elected, they will be reinforced that they pursued the right strategy of absolute opposition of no new taxes and further tax cuts and romney will have little influence over his own party. >> that's a pretty strong statement from thomas man. the grover nors quist pledge is on its death bed if obama gets re-elected i think liberals all over the world just at least a collective -- released a flock of doves into the air. karen, what do you make of that? in terms of how president obama negotiates a senate where he has a slim majority but a house that is still dominated by republicans? >> i think he's right. here's the dirty secret in washington. most of the moderate not crazy republicans, really are sick of the tea party. they get the fact that they have been dragged down, their numbers in terms of a party, has been dragged down by the tea party. that the obstruction is not working. they were close to getting a deal and who was it, eric cantor and the tea partiers that made it not happen. looks like michelle bachmann and a couple other key tea parti
votes. that's one of president obama's key messages right now. alex, i can tell you this race here in new hampshire is essentially in a deadlock with the president holding onto a narrow lead. >> i'll tell you whether it's four electoral votes there in new hampshire or nine in colorado feels like a battle for every single one out there right now. kristen welker, thank you so much. enjoy james taylor, i might add. >>> also ahead, more on the impact hurricane sandy could have on the election. coming up in strategy talk, the comments made by one romney team surrogate still reverberating. what's behind his remarks. and it's not the first time he said something outrageous. >>> a bit later, the news room edition of office politics. i talk with several of my colleague about the what if scenarios for november 7th, the day after the election. keep it here. you're watching "weekends with alex witt." and we got onesies. sometimes miracles get messy. so we use tide free. no perfumes or dyes for her delicate skin. brad. not it. not it. just kidding. that's our tide. what's yours? throughout our
in the right direction. in terms of the confidence argument president obama has had a stellar week so he can't lead, he's in over his head, be you can't make that argument. so increasingly romney looks small and petty and again, these headlines coming out of ohio, he's lying, looks like desperation and trying to run down the clock to get to election day in the same way he was in the republican primary. he's not taking questions. won't be doing more interviews. i thought it was -- it's an odd strategy to go back to the attack message at a time when the numbers that people are seeing and i think the overall mood, that's not consistent with what people are feeling. >> can you imagine, if romney actually got on the stump and today and said, not so bad numbers. >> right. >> not so bad. kind of channeling his inner christy. that is never going to happen as he's trying to win the presidency, but he's -- for a minute, ari, the middle of the road guy thing seemed to be working for him, although the longer it goes on the more shamelessly transparent that it seems especially when barbs are thrown with
the truth. this is just falling right into the hands of the obama campaign. you can't make this stuff up. but you see if he were to talk about the 1100 jobs that chrysler added in detroit, then of course, that would be complimenting the president on job creation and saving the automobile industry. it's a tight spot for romney and his surrogates. get your cell phones out. tonight's question, is lying the only way mitt romney can win ohio? text a for yes, b for no to 622639. you can go to our blog online. we'll bring you results later on in the program. i'm joined by a couple sources who know all about automobile rescue. that is former governor ted strickland of ohio. and also with us tonight is congressman tim ryan of ohio. gentlemen, great to have you with us. governor, you first. i can only think that this is a complete disservice to the people of ohio to go out in front of a crowd and erroneously put out information that cuts right to the fabric of what this election is all about and that's jobs. what's your reaction? >> my reaction is that mitt romney is a desperate man. he knows he's
speaking what does rasmussen report? >> we find right now, mitt romney is at 50% and barack obama is at 46 for the last five days romney has been at the 50% mark and had generally a three-point lead inching up a little bit today. something that has been the norm ever since that first presidential debate. romney with a slight lead but nothing he can feel comfortable with. >> geraldo: now, they say romney has the momentum but obama has the math. let's talk about the math the. some states we will be talking about, the battleground states. start with wisconsin, scott. how does the battleground state of wisconsin shape up? >> well, this state could become the new ohio this year. it could become the decisive battleground state. our latest numbers show 49 to 49 in wisconsin. a state where unlike say, ohio, or other parts around the country the republican ground game might actually be better than the democrats and the reason for that, they had all that practice in the scott walker recall election. right now the race is very tight. all four men on the ticket, obama, biden, ryan and romney are in wi
, independent mayor mike bloomberg, has just endorsed president obama for four more years. let's get right to our panel. with us from washington, msnbc political analyst david corn, author of "47 percent." and joy reid managing editor of thegrio.com. of who always brings 100%. >> borrowing the words of calvin coolidge who said the business of america is business. the most respected businessman turned politician mike bloomberg has just endorsed the president. what do you make of that move? >> what was interesting was one of the reasons mayor bloomberg cited, which was climate change. looking at the devastating impact of the storm sandy -- >> due mean that nonsensical, mumbo jumbo, nonsense that isn't believable. >> we will remember when mitt romney joked, actually joked, about rising ocean levels and the president's desire to do something about it during his speech in tampa. and so i think mike bloomberg is taking that quite seriously, and even though this isn't been an issue unfortunately in this campaign and even though i think the president cares about this, wants to do something about i
pulled back the curtain. i voted for barack obama. >> cenk: but there is a twist to that story. i can't wait to shove that in the republicans' face. do you know what time it is? it's showtime. >> cenk: all right let's be honest. it's panic time. mitt romney is winning on the national level. on the popular vote. this is a collection of votes that the "huffington post" does, 47.3% to 46.9%. when you look at the margin of error, he is winning. when you look at other politics, there you have 47.9%-to-47.0%. i thought barack obama would win the popular vote and the college electoral vote. this morning as i looked a the those numbers. that's not one poll. that's a combination of polls. there is some chance now that president obama loses the popular vote, which is amazing. why is that the case? president obama had to do these things. one was the other guy sucks check. we got that. i mean, he hammered romney and did it effectively. number two we didn't do that bad over the last few years. we could have done better but it was a mess in the first place. i think he has done a fairly good job pre
if the -- don't have a president who was willing to lean on his own party. obama has been willing to do that. >> are we going to have a democratic senate? >> right now it looks increasingly like we will have a democratic senate. once again, republicans have blown it by nominating people like richard mourdock in indiana over richard lugar, nominate taught a get in missouri against if hon. -- nominating taught a ca -- todd akin in missouri against eight vulnerable claire mccaskill. elizabeth warren in massachusetts has the lead in virtually every poll. herb stein, a fine man, said that this is the year that we have to deal with the deficit or debt over the fact that we will ever deal with the deficit. this is the moment. we have to do it is time we just accept that we are going down a road of increasing debt. >> what about the house? still republican? >> again, let's go back to that first debate. stumble cost a lot of democrats who have trouble as well, i don't think it looks as good for democrats in the house as it did that. >> republicans have done their redistricting. democrats has steadily
for the candidates. the race right now is as tight as it comes. the latest poll has romney at 48%, president obama at 47%. so essentially we're talking about a dead heat. cnn political editor paul joins me now with more. he's live in pensacola, florida, one of the critical swing states in this election. mitt romney is headed your way today in hopes of winning over undecided voters there, paul. but how close is it politically in the sunshine state right now? >> reporter: it is very close in the sunshine state. in fact, take a look at this, christi. this is the most recent poll we did about a week ago. you can't get much closer among likely voters. mitt romney with a one-point edge, but that's all tied up in the sampling error. this is the first of three stops today for mitt romney across the state. he'll be campaigning with marco rubio, the popular freshman senator here in florida. we had this up on our website cnn.com. you can see how much attention florida is getting. both the candidates made well over 20 trips each here to the sunshine state since the start of the general election back in april.
